This week the books are 'You Are Deathless: A Near-Death Experience Taught Me How to Fully Live and Not Fear Death' by Nicole Kerr and 'Spiritual Consciousness - A Personal Journey' by Kevin Briggs.Nicole KerrIf death is an end, then I know for certain there is nothing final about it.When Nicole Kerr hit the ground, she thought: I am going to die, yet death is not supposed to happen this way. I am just 19 years old. I still have things to do, places to go, deadlines to meet, so I cannot be dead. I don't have time to be dead. Still, I think I am. This must be death. Rays of brilliant white light flood me from all sides. Streams of light cocoon me, wrapping every part of my being in a chrysalis of soothing waves. Instead of the pain of impact, I feel rocked and held. This is bliss. No fear.All of us fear death. For most of us, that fear remains below the surface of conscious awareness most of the time. What is fear if not the body's reaction to the possibility of its own end? Eventually, you will die, so why, then, does Nicole Kerr make the audacious claim that you are deathless?In the book You Are Deathless, Nicole Kerr shares her journey about awakening to herself and the transforming work of aligning her soul, spirit, mind, and body. Through her own death, Nicole was forced to shed ascribed identities, such as being a people-pleaser, to instead develop an authentic, loving relationship with herself and God.Her story proves that we can put to death the punishing, angry God that man created. This allows the beautiful God of love and acceptance whom she encountered in her own death to emerge and accompany us in day-to-day life.Nicolebeautifully presents how her NDE was actually an STE: A Spiritually Transformative Experience. This aligns with the ten most common NDE lessons (Source: IANDS 2020 Annual Report), the first of which is We do not die. Nicole has persevered through enormous suffering and pain to create the life she now loves.Nicole has seen what awaits you at the end of this life because she's been there, and she can assure you that it's a new beginning more beautiful than you can now comprehend. A good death begins today, and with it, a great life. Through Nicole's death experience, you can learn how to live your life to the fullest. You can engage in your own metamorphosis without having to die like Nicole did.Award-winning health expert Nicole Kerr is the co-author of Eating the Rainbow: Lifelong Nutritional Wellness—Without Lies, Hype, or Calculus. She has appeared on CNN, PBS, CBS, ABC, the Food Channel, and a host of other TV and radio shows to share her unique perspective on wellness, lifestyle, and nutrition.NICOLE KERRFor the past 30 years, Nicole has worked in all sectors of society, including in government (the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), non-profit (American Cancer Society), military (United States Air Force Medical Operations), academia (University of Hawaii), healthcare institutions/hospitals (Adventist Health Castle and Queens Medical Center), corporate settings (Sea Ties, LLC), and private consultation. Nicole's warm, engaging presentations have earned her a place in front of international audiences ranging from corporate food producers to health and medical associations. Throughout her career, she has focused on supporting people from every walk of life to make realistic, meaningful, happy choices for lifelong health and well-being.When she was a 19-year-old cadet at the United States Air Force Academy, Nicole would be forced to learn how to live and love differently following a terrifying and transformative Near-Death Experience. Her memory of the crash came back 20 years later, and it has taken Nicole almost another two decades to align her soul, spirit, mind, and body, proving healing is certainly a non-linear process.A disabled veteran, Nicole now maintains a private practice primarily using Neuro Emotional Technique (NET) targeting the often overlooked domains of emotional, energy, and spiritual well-being. https://www.amazon.com/You-Are-Deathless-Near-Death-Experience-ebook/dp/B0B9V99DLR/ref=tmm_kin_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=1663922513&sr=8-1https://www.nicolekerr.com/Kevin BriggsBMK Publishing is proud to offer Spiritual Consciousness as a nonfiction book. It is a journey of one person from a young boy to adulthood, experiencing many aspects of life and life beyond death. It encompasses family, friends, happiness, and heartache. This book is not about thrills and spills of fiction. It is one persons life, with the usual daily routines intersected with his extracurricular experiences. It is these experiences that he encounters that are important. They are experiences that many people dont have, but if you do, then dont be fearful. Embrace them and learn. Many children have such experiences, and in some cases, their parents dont know how to handle it. They think their child is abnormal. They are not; they require guidance and understanding. This personal journey of Kevins shows the path he encountered. Kevins guide leads him elsewhereinto a different life. Do we really know the world in which we live? What is beyond? Kevins fascinating journey leads him within this world and into the next. There were many questions for him, and many are without answers. Kevin is undoubtedly in the present, but what about his past life, his future life, and his companions on his journey, a journey that he continues to explore? The unexplainable is explained. How do we know we are conscious? Some people never achieve knowing about consciousness. Some people find it hard to understand and believe. This book is for people who are curious, or perhaps they themselves have had an experience that they cannot explain and dont know where to turn. You are not alone.BioKevin J Briggs is an author and specializes in consciousness and the connection to ET/UFOs. His recently published book is titled “Spiritual Consciousness A Personal Journey” and covers 57 years of his experiences of ET contact and UFO connections.

This week the U.S. Air Force celebrated its birthday, marking 75 years since it gained its hard-won independence from the U.S. Army. This independence remains not only about who is in command of who, but perhaps more importantly it is also about identity and culture. What lessons can the newest branch of the military, the U.S. Space Force, take from the Air Force experience to launch itself into an independent trajectory? To get the answers, Laura Winter is joined by Michael Hankins, Curator for U.S. Air Force, Navy, and Marine Corps post-World War II Aviation, Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum; Brian Laslie, Command Historian and Associate Professor Department of History, United States Air Force Academy; and M.V. “Coyote” Smith, Associate Professor, Strategic Space Studies, Department of Space Power, United States Air Force Air Command and Staff College.

Bio of our guest Mr. Matthew Lohmeier: MatthewLohmeier.com SAMPAC.org STARRS.us Matthew Lohmeier is a public speaker, author of the bestselling book Irresistible Revolution: Marxism's Goal of Conquest & the Unmaking of the American Military, and founder of the Save America's Military PAC (SAMPAC). He actively works with the veteran-led non-profit group STARRS to educate Americans about the dangers of racist and radical ideologies that are infiltrating our military. He is also host of The Matt Lohmeier Show. His book Irresistible Revolution was published in May 2021, at which time Matt was a respected active-duty commander in the newly formed US Space Force. For publishing and speaking about his book, then-Lieutenant Colonel Lohmeier was relieved of his command and subjected to an Inspector General investigation launched from the Pentagon. He subsequently joined the nation's biggest media personalities to discuss the proliferation of Marxist-rooted critical race theory (CRT) in the military and its divisive impact on the force and mission. Matt separated from active duty on September 1, 2021, and is now a highly sought public speaker and consultant on matters of Marxist ideology and tactics, CRT, the betterment of military culture, and the preservation of our liberties. A 2006 graduate of the United States Air Force Academy, Matt began his active-duty military career as a pilot, flying over 1,200 hours in the T-38 as an instructor pilot followed by flying the F-15C. After flying, he cross-trained into space operations and gained expertise in space-based missile warning. Matt promoted two years below the zone to lieutenant colonel, graduated at the top of his classes earning him the distinguished graduate (DG) award at four different Air Force schools, and served as aide-de-camp for a four-star general for one year. In October 2020, he transferred into the United States Space Force and was placed in command of a space-based missile warning squadron in Colorado. Matt has two master's degrees—a master's in military operational art and science, and a Master of Philosophy in military strategy from the School of Advanced Air and Space Studies (SAASS), considered by many the Defense Department's premier strategy school. He lives with his wife and children in Idaho.

Matthew Lohmeier is author of the bestselling book Irresistible Revolution: Marxism's Goal of Conquest & the Unmaking of the American Military. His book Irresistible Revolution was published in May 2021, at which time Matt was a respected active-duty commander in the newly formed US Space Force. For publishing and speaking about his book, then-Lieutenant Colonel Lohmeier was relieved of his command and subjected to an Inspector General investigation launched from the Pentagon. He subsequently joined the nation's biggest media personalities to discuss the proliferation of Marxist-rooted critical race theory (CRT) in the military and its divisive impact on the force and mission. Matt separated from active duty on September 1, 2021, and is now a highly sought public speaker and private consultant on matters of Marxist ideology and tactics, CRT, the betterment of military culture, and the preservation of our liberties. A 2006 graduate of the United States Air Force Academy, Matt began his active-duty military career as a pilot, flying over 1,200 hours in the T-38 as an instructor pilot followed by flying the F-15C. After flying, he cross-trained into space operations and gained expertise in space-based missile warning. Matt promoted two years below the zone to lieutenant colonel, graduated at the top of his classes earning him the distinguished graduate (DG) award at four different Air Force schools, and served as aide-de-camp for a four-star general for one year. In October 2020, he transferred into the United States Space Force and was placed in command of a space-based missile warning squadron in Colorado. Matt has two master's degrees—a master's in military operational art and science, and a Master of Philosophy in military strategy from the School of Advanced Air and Space Studies (SAASS), considered by many the Defense Department's premier strategy school. He lives with his wife and children in Idaho.
